Winkler, Edwin Theodore, D.D., was born in Savannah, Nov. 13, 1823, and educated at Brown University. He entered the Baptist ministry in 1846, and subsequently filled several important literary and other appointments in addition to his pastorates. He died at Marion, Alabama, Nov. 10, 1883. He compiled The Sacred Lute, a Collection of popular Hymns, 1855 (enlarged ed., 1860), to which he contributed 8 hymns, the first lines of which are given in Burrage. (Burrage's Baptist Hymn Writers, 1888, p. 416.) Some of these have passed into other American collections, including "Our land with mercies crowned."
